Media roundtable; record heat

Jacksonville City Hall.
Jacksonville City Hall.

Jacksonville city officials keep doubling down on the city's redistricting maps, despite a federal judge's ruling against them.

The city has potentially paid more than $150,000 in fees to outside law firms and consultants in its attempts to draw and defend district maps, according to a Florida Times-Union review of invoices.

That was one of the week's biggest stories before our media roundtable today. Among the others: Douglas Anderson School of the Arts canceled the play "Indecent" over content deemed inappropriate for students. And excitement is building for the Jaguars playoff game on Saturday.


Record heat

For decades, NASA and NOAA have kept careful watch on Earth’s changing climate. Each year they release an update each year to the hottest years on record, and they added 2022 to the books this week.

Guest: Wendy Bohon, NASA earth scientist based at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
